Pleomorphic Sarcoma in a Patient with Osteopetrosis
We report the case of a 53-year-old woman with previously undiagnosed osteopetrosis who presented with a pathologic proximal humeral fracture secondary to pleomorphic sarcoma, which is previously undescribed in the English literature. Management of the primary lesion necessitated ablative surgery, but the malignancy nonetheless was associated with rapidly progressive metastatic disease. (Source: Journal of Radiology Case Reports)

Torsion of Wandering Spleen and its adherence to the right ovary - An unusual cause of recurrent pain abdomen
Wandering spleen is a rare condition in which the spleen is hypermobile due to laxity or lack of its supporting ligaments. It can be located anywhere in the abdomen besides its usual position. The other terms that are used to describe this condition are splenic ptosis, displaced spleen, dislocated spleen and ectopic spleen. Splenic torsion is a dreaded complication and the usual cause of symptoms. There is a high chance of missing the diagnosis as it remains asymptomatic or may be incidentally discovered on radio-imaging done for a different purpose. An acute abdomen is the most common presentation. Here we describe an unu...

The Wandering Charm Needle
Charm needles, otherwise known as susuk, are small pin like objects worn subcutaneously, thought to bring magic powers, bringing health, wealth, beauty, and other benefits to the wearer. These talismans are fairly common in South-East Asia, and are generally thought to be benign entities with few clinical sequela. In fact, no known complications have ever been reported in the literature, as susuk are typically composed of biologically inert precious metals and rarely migrate from their origin. Herein, we detail the first ever reported case of a complication from a charm needle, involving a middle aged Chinese female who ha...

Adventitious bursitis in the plantar fat pad of forefoot presenting as a tumoral mass
We report three cases of adventitious bursitis in patients who complained of a painful palpable mass on the forefoot, with a partially solid and enhancing component seen on MRI. In the first case, a biopsy was performed for the diagnosis of adventitious bursitis. The two other cases exhibited a solid component on MRI. However, a diagnosis of adventitious bursitis was suspected, and it was felt that a biopsy could be postponed. The spontaneous regression of the mass with relative discharge of the forefoot pressure confirmed the diagnosis. With these three cases, we illustrate the MR findings that could suggest adventitious ...

Delayed Rupture of the Renal Collecting System Secondary to a Traumatic Hemorrhage in the Setting of Suspected Chronic Ureteropelvic Junction Obstruction
We report a case of post-traumatic hemorrhage into the renal collecting system leading to delayed rupture of the renal pelvis in the setting of suspected chronic ureteropelvic junction obstruction. This case illustrates the difficulty in diagnosis of acute hemorrhage into the renal collecting system. Special attention should be given to a kidney with a pre-existing abnormality in the setting of trauma to prevent complications. A literature review of hemorrhage into the collecting system along with appropriate imaging and management are discussed. (Source: Journal of Radiology Case Reports)

Extramedullary multiple myeloma with central nervous system and multiorgan involvement: Case report and literature review
Multiple myeloma is a hematologic malignancy due to monoclonal plasma cell proliferation. It is usually confined to the bone marrow, although extramedullary involvement is known to occur in almost any organ system; myelomatous spread to the central nervous system is a rare manifestation of myeloma. Extramedullary disease is thought to be related to hematogenous spread when myeloma cells show decreased cell surface receptor expression, allowing cells to escape from the bone marrow. Disease outside of the bone marrow generally indicates a poor prognosis; central nervous system involvement is associated with a median prognosi...

Superficial peroneal nerve compression due to peroneus brevis muscle herniation
Muscle hernias of the extremities most commonly occur in the leg, between the knee and ankle. Symptomatic muscle hernias in the leg are rare cause of chronic leg pain and neuropathy, and not routinely encountered in surgical practice. Although this condition is especially an esthetic problem, with palpable subcutaneous soft tissue mass, it can lead to spontaneous pain, cramp, local tenderness or potentially neuropathic symptoms. Moreover, among leg muscles involved in this process, peroneus brevis is less frequent than tibialis anterior. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is the method of choice in establishing the diagnosis.

Aortoenteric fistula secondary to an Inflammatory Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
Primary aortoenteric fistulas are rare, with the annual incidence of such fistulas estimated to be 0.007 per million. The most common predisposing conditions for primary aortoenteric fistulas are atherosclerotic abdominal aortic aneurysms or penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers. We illustrate a rare case of an inflammatory aortic aneurysm causing a primary aortic fistula, with a direct fistulous jet from the aorta to the bowel with resultant catastrophic bleeding. In contrast to atherosclerotic aneurysms, most inflammatory aneurysms are symptomatic and show dense perianeurysmal fibrosis and periaortic wall thickening. A dire...
